 Hi  guys,
 
 Just  back  from  an  exhausting  2  days  of  trying  to  find  the  Puntius  denisonii.
 
 We  did  find  it,  and  how!
 
 I'll  post  pics,  as  soon  as  I  can  tomorrow.
 
 Hey,  retro  guess  what?!
 There's  a  surprise  for  you  too!

 Here's  a  preview  of  the  trip:
 
 Puntius  denisonii  we  searched  and  found
 
 
 
 along  with  these  cute  guys/gals:
 
 
 
 and  this  massive  guy:
 
 
 
 The  first  one  the  Puntius  denisonii  we  found  in  very  small  numbers,    
 let  them  be  where  they  were  and  did  not  bring  any  back  home.
 
 The  second  guys  the  Lion  Tailed  Maquae  we  could  not  dream  of  getting  near  their  high  perch.
 
 The  third  guy  was  too  heavy  to  cart  back  home  even  if  he  allowed  it.
 
 It's  all  Retro's  fault,  he's  still  not  earned  his  first  million  and  got  us  that  truck  to  entice  this  feller!
 
 I'll  have  the  complete  article  up  soon.

 Cool  Photos,    Smile  I  have  a  Qustion  to  ask  the  redmark  on  the
 center  of  the  Boady  of  the  Puntius  extended  up  to  the  Tail  Fin,what  Species,that  would  be  called.  A  Year  back  I  have  sighted  this  with  a  Hobbyist  he  said  that  it  is  Imported.    Puntius  what  we  see  at  LFS  are  wild  caught  from  Kerala
 Streams  is  What  I  have  seen  here.I  tried  keeping  them  twice,but  failed.I  Presume  that  your  Article  will  help  to  one  and  all  to  Know  about  this  Fish.
 
 Regards
 Sundar

 Are  you  sure  ZedLepp?    because  taking  a  close  look  at  the  tail,  the  common  langurs  have  white  hairs  all  over  the  tail  and  these  guys  had  a  black  tail.

 The  Tusker  was  located  at  the  Nagarhole  National  park.
 
 Why  Periyar  Tiger  reserve....  we  can  find  wild  Tuskers  at  Anekal  near  Bangalore,  just  15  kilometers  away.

 madan,  from  what  i  have  been  told,  in  kerala  the  tusker  population  is  real  low.  the  non-tusked  male  version  of  elephants  seem  to  account  for  majority  of  the  male  population  thanks  to  not-so-natural  selection  by  poachers..  might  be  a  different  story  in  karnataka  though..

 I  agree  with  you  on  this  Zed,  The  average  age  of  a  female  leading  a  herd  in  the  entire  South  India  is  about  17  years  or  lower.  These  matriarchs  have  just  about  sexually  matured  (  I  suspect  Indian  elephants  do  that  about  15  years  of  age)  which  is  very  sad.
 
 This  guy  too  is  a  very  young  male  about  15-18  years  of  age  no  more.  A  virtual  teenager,  I  have  seen  real  large  males  and  this  feller  is  still  growing.
 
 Until  now  we  had  just  Veerappan  poaching  elephants,  now  with  him  gone  and  no  danger,  every  corrupt  Govt,  forest,  police  official  will  be  joining  these  poachers  and  will  soon  decimate  the  elephant  population.

 Let's  pray  that  Elephants  and  Tigers  which  is  a  proud  symbol  representing  our  country  breeds  and  develops  well,  poachers  of  these  animals  get  extinct  instead  of  the  animals.
